Research Interest

My research is broadly centred on the study of neuromodulation, short- and long-term changes in neuronal networks and behavioural plasticity with a specific focus on the role of serotonin and nitric oxide. In this work, I try to integrate the use of both invertebrate (snails/slugs) and vertebrate model systems (dissociated cell and organotypic rat cortical cultures, acute brain slices) and use a range of techniques ranging from behavioural studies to electrophysiological, functional calcium imaging, immunohistochemistry and molecular methods.
